This Revealing Clue Makes Us Think Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Might Name Their Baby ‘Lily’

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are busy preparing for the arrival of their firstborn, due this spring. And, although the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have kept their lips sealed on their baby’s gender, that hasn’t stopped royal family fans from guessing names for a baby girl.

Right now, royal family names like Elizabeth, Diana, Victoria, and Alexandra are some of the top contenders for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s baby’s name. However, one revealing clue shows that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex might plan to name their daughter ‘Lily.’

Back in January, while visiting St. Anne’s Catholic Primary School, Meghan Markle asked the young schoolchildren for advice on naming her baby if it’s a girl. “What name do you think I should call her?” she asked. “Amy,” replied a young boy named Ivon Chen. “That’s a really pretty name, I like it, we’ll have to think about it,” she replied.

While Amy is a pretty name, Prince Harry seemed to like “Lily” the best. According to Hello! Magazine, one woman later revealed that Prince Harry asked a mother how she spelled her daughter Lily’s name.

Prince Harry isn’t the only one with Lily on his mind. Some royal family fans also like the name, noting its similarities to Queen Elizabeth’s childhood nickname, Lilibet (which is what Prince Philip still calls her).

If Prince Harry and Meghan Markle want to name their daughter after Queen Elizabeth, they might switch it up by calling her Lily. However, the Duke of Sussex’s grandmother isn’t the only royal woman to inspire the future royal baby’s name.

In addition to Lily, some believe Prince Harry and Meghan Markle might name their daughter “Alexandra,” in honor of their philanthropic efforts. Alexandra means “helper of mankind.” Some also believe the Duke and Duchess of Sussex might go with a name that honors their feminist beliefs and name their baby after Queen Victoria, who was known for being a powerful leader.

According to reports, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle want their baby’s gender to be a surprise. However, it might be a surprise for the public — not them — as the Duchess of Sussex allegedly told her friends she is having a baby boy.

If these allegations are true, the parents-to-be have many royal baby boy names to choose from. Many think the Duke and Duchess of Sussex might name their firstborn Charles after Prince Charles, Prince Harry’s father and the future king. Additionally, Philip is a top contender, as the Duke of Sussex is very close to his grandfather.

But, perhaps one of the sweetest name suggestions stems from Prince Harry’s mother’s side of the family. The Duke of Sussex no doubt wants to honor Princess Diana through his baby’s name. And, some believe he and Meghan Markle might do so by naming their child “Spencer” after the late princess’s maiden name.
